GCPBA and the RRFW Appeal


This is in response to some off-list questions, and to provide the broader river community with a quick update on GCPBA's involvement in the RRFW litigation challenging the CRMP.

GCPBA remains fully engaged in supporting the increased private boater access provided by the CRMP. As GCPBA did in the initial trial phase (which resulted in a decision that strongly affirmed the CRMP process) we are continuing to support the Park Service at the appellate level.

GPCBA's representation has been provided by Lori Potter, of Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell, a prominent Denver law firm. Ms. Potter continues to offer the same excellent level of legal service in the appellate stage of this case.

GCPBA remains convinced that the CRMP provides a reasonable balance between a wide variety of competing interests, each of which sought to assert their point of view in the Park's planning process. The final result -- as with so many things in our society -- represents a compromise. And while there aspects of the CRMP that GCPBA neither sought nor prefers, the new plan clearly represents significant gains for private boaters.

Defending the CRMP has been costly for GCPBA -- both in terms of Board member time and money. Complex issues require intricate research and analysis (provided by folks like Ricard Martin, Dave Yeamans, Earl Perry, and others), and quality legal services do not come cheaply. So we appreciate the encouragement and material support that members and non-members alike have provided in the initial stage of this legal battle. And now -- as this appeal presents GCPBA with further financial needs -- we welcome your continued contributions to this important effort.

Thanks, and best to you all.
